Anyone watched it yet? I haven't had a chance. I'm always scared of it being a dud when anything is revisited or remade after 30 years. Reviews haven't been the greatest on it but after the last couple of years I don't really trust reviews from the access media. Word of mouth reviews have been a lot more accurate.

The first 30 minutes are nostalgic as all hell and they bring back SO many people from the first movie, including minor characters.

After that 30 minutes it is pretty stale. A majority of the movie takes place in Zamunda and they constantly populate it with tired Africa tropes.

There were a few laugh out loud moments, and a few good performances (Wesley Snipes is totally over the top and the best performance is probably Eddie Murphy’s oldest daughter), but that’s about it. I highly suggest NOT paying $30 for it.

It’s ridiculous, terrible and great all at the same time.

pretty much exactly what you expect from the trailers.

Leslie Jones is flat out hilarious in it though.

It wasn't as good as the original, but it had some good moments. They telegraphed the plot and ending, but it's not meant to be clever. I still don't like that it turned out he had a son, but it could have been worse. Major weak points IMO, Leslie Jones and Tracy Morgan. It's hard to find 2 more unfunny so-called comedians. They are annoying as hell. Wesley killed it, and I really loved John Amos. Too bad no Eriq LaSalle.

I turned it off after 30 minutes just way over the top and goofy
